Hi,

Using ESEUtil to Defrag an Exchange 2010 Mailbox Database:

Step1: Open the Exchange Management Shell and navigate to the folder containing the database file.

cd D:\Data\MB-HO-01

Step2:Dismount the mailbox database using following command:

Dismount-Database MB-HO-01

Step3: Now run ESEUtil to defrag the file and use below command:

D:\Data\MB-HO-01>eseutil /d MB-HO-01.edb /t\\testserver\defrag\temp.edb

After de-fragmentation completes.

Step4: Mount database again using below command:

mount-Database MB-HO-01

I hope this will help you.

Regards,
Arjun

I would look at determining free space before planning an outage that may not be necessary.  If there is little white space in the database, running a defrag won't do anything for you.

Offline defrag of an Exchange 2010 database is neither recommended or required. It is not risk free and there are almost no situations where it is required. It isn't something that you must do.

If you have a lot of white space, then create a new database and move the users to it. Risk free and no downtime.

Simon.
